What is DASH?
DASH (Dynamic After School Hours) is a recreational program for children in grades 1st-6th funded by the Chula Vista Elementary School District and operated by the South Bay Family YMCA. DASH operates on all school days for 2 hours on regular days and 3 hours on minimum days for students enrolled.
How many students are accepted to enroll?
The number of students will be determined according to the school district/CDC guidelines. Once we have more information from the CDC in regards to how many students we can serve we will run the accepted lists and contact parents that have been accepted. We will assess enrollment regularly and add new students from the waitlist as students drop or don’t meet the attendance requirements. Siblings will be kept together, so if one gets in the other will as well.
What are the attendance requirements of DASH?
Students are required to attend/participate a minimum of 30 minutes, 3 days a week (regardless of holidays) to ensure the program is for those who truly need it. Time off request forms will be available for parents to complete and submit if there is a time period you need off for your student. Attendance audits will be conducted regularly to ensure everyone is meeting the attendance policies.
